Agent Training

By:  Jessica Ruminski, Training Department Manager

MRED’s Training Department was thrilled to see so many agents and brokers taking advantage of our free classes this month for the next generation of Realist®.  However, too often we see agents only taking classes for new products or when major updates to an old product occur.  MRED would love to see our more seasoned agents taking advantage of our training classes – whether hands-on, online, in-office, or through videos – on a continuing basis. 

When an agent or broker takes MRED training classes regularly, we are not surprised to find out that they learn new tips and tricks each time.  One agent remarked in feedback, after taking our connectMLS™ Listing Entry class, “Great information! I have played around with the site and thought I knew a lot, but now know how much I do not know!”  Another agent that has been in the business over eight years took our hands-on connectMLS™ CMA class and told us, “The trainer was very knowledgeable, and I learned some cool things about the system that I didn’t know.” 

Each MRED trainer brings their own unique spin to each topic, which means you are bound to learn something you did not know before taking the class.  Don’t know where to start?  Log on to and view our hands on or online training class descriptions or call us and we will direct you to a class that will fit your needs.  So, our challenge to you is to register for one of our free classes each month this year and find out what you don’t know!
